Minutes - approved as published.

Treasurer's Report:

  • As of the end of June, the Balances in our accounts: General Acct, $3514; Quilt Show Acct, $1280, and Raffle Acct, $437. The amount expended from two accounts, Library Books and our P.O. Box Rental, exceeded the amount budgeted. The report will be filed for audit.
  • Motion: I move to ratify the checks written that exceeded the budgeted amounts. (M. Naughton/T. Grice/Passed unanimously.)
  • The Fabric Sale to members last month earned $760. This will cover our overages; the balance will be put toward Programs.
  • We have 61 Paid members, plus two half-year members. Our budget was based on 60 members.
  • We need 3 volunteers for the Audit Committee.

Programs -

  • We need ideas for Programs. Two ideas suggested so far:
  •       Make a tote for an iron
  •       Have a Sew-In to make an easy shopping bag (to replace plastic bags)
  • Today - we will have three mini workshops - by Kay, Teresa, and Cathy. Kay will demonstrate her Double Diamond Ruler, Teresa will show her Go! Cutter, Cathy will show how she makes greeting cards.
  • August - a Sew Together guided by Mary Kay, to make an Open Wide Bag. Workshop Fee - $10. An Instruction Sheet of required prep work is available today and is posted on our website under the Announcements tab. Mary Kay brought both a medium bag and a large bag to show those who have signed up for the project.
  • September - make a Spider Web quilt, guided by Jill. Info sheet with fabric requirements and initial cutting is available today and is posted on the website. Workshop Fee - $10.
  • October - another Sew Together with Mary Kay - this one to make a Moravian Star. This is an English Paper Piecing project and would make a nice Christmas gift! Info sheet posted on the website under the Announcements tab. Workshop Fee - $10.
  • November - a mystery quilt will be led by Peggy. First page with fabric requirements and some cutting instructions will be available in September. The 2nd page with more instructions will come in October. Instructions for final assembly will be in November.
  • December - some kind of Christmas luncheon - perhaps a box lunch or something catered/served to minimize handling of food and utensils. We prefer to avoid a potluck at this time.
